    Hello. Best of the season to you.
    My question is how often should I replace the cleaning solution in my cleaner or how do I tell it’s time to replace it?
    Many thanks in advance,
    David

    You will get many different answers. I leave mine as long as it still gets things clean and it is my own mixture.

    I use Deox-007 and also generally use it as long as it works. Once in a while I pour it through coffee filters to remove any particulate matter. I'll probably dump it the first of the year because it has gotten so dark I can't see parts in it any longer. I use a small cleaner so it isn't too expensive to change the solution more often.

    What DS said.

    If you don't heat the solution and don't run the US for so long, it will last a lot longer.

    Yes. Heat cleans very dirty/oily parts faster but the solution becomes contaminated faster. I find that cleaning parts first by spraying with naphtha and a bristle paint brush, gets the gook off. Then I run them in the US in cold solution.
